A little while ago I mentioned we were having a stainless steel backsplash made to go behind the stove. Well she is now in place and perfectly at home. It wasn’t without some serious planning and elbow grease but it was totally worth it.
To install the backsplash we utilized the melamine template as a stabilizer and hung that on the wall first.
To hang the melamine on the wall we screwed four small pieces of wood to the melamine and then screwed through the wood into the wall. We were going to glue the backsplash to the melamine with contact cement (used to glue formica to wood when making countertops) but decided that the space was tight enough that the screws attaching the corner details would hold the backsplash in place.
I’m really happy we went with the stainless steel backsplash. It ties in nicely with the stainless steel refrigerator and pendant lights. Next up, resealing the floors with the E3/2K epoxy resin sealer!
